After his time in prison, Cain doesn’t want to hurt his wife again and becomes a man torn—divided between the darkness inside him,his twisted love, and his lifelong protector, Donovan. As Cain tries to convince his wife that he’s changed, he watches the bodies hit the floor one by one at the hands of his sidekick. Enraged by his estranged wife’s new love and conflict ed by his own anger and need to protect his family, Cain unravels.
